Michelle Annette Phillips

Michelle Moss Phillips won her battle with breast cancer on October 12th 2015. She entered heaven singing the praises of her heavenly Father with her angelic voice. Michelle was born on November 20th 1962 in Searcy, Arkansas to the late Donald Ray Moss and Patsy A. Lendermon Moss. The majority of her childhood was spent in Searcy before moving to the Gravel Hill Community. Michelle was a graduate of Rose Bud High School and later achieved a Registered Nursing License from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. The majority of her nursing career was spent in the operating room. Her most recent career move landed her in the wound clinic at Baptist Health-Springhill. It is there that she was able to minister through her cancer journey to other patients that she cared for. Nursing was her passion and she often referred to it as a calling from God. She is survived by her husband, Bruce Phillips of Mt. Vernon, sons Josh Moss (Jesse) of Mt. Vernon and Bryan Phillips of Guy; daughters Tara Roberson (Chris) of Searcy, Ashley Green (Justin) of Romance, and Charity Pruett of Mt. Vernon; brother, Tony Moss (Kathy) of Rose Bud and sister Melissa Rodgers (Dewie) of Rose Bud. She was a loving and proud Mimi to Tytan, Austin, Dixie, Maylee, Levi, Gage, Peyton, and Jaxon. Michelle enjoyed camping, washer pitching, family cookouts, Goodwill shopping trips and weekend getaways to Branson. Her contagious smile and laughter, beautiful voice, and selfless attitude thru trials and tribulations will forever be missed by family and friends. In lieu of flowers the family requests that financial gifts be made in Michelle's memory to Conway Regional Health Foundation for Fabulous You Boutique, which provides wigs for women who are fighting breast cancer.

In Lieu of Flowers the family ask that you donate to Conway Regional Health Foundation online at Conway Regional.org/foundation or you can mail your donation to 2302 College Ave., Conway, Arkansas 72034

The first thing I said when I heard of Michelle's passing was, she is rejoicing with our Savior Jesus Christ! What an amazing legacy she has left as she touched so many with her love, laughter and song. She will be missed by so many but their lives will never be the same just by knowing her. My prayers are with all the family.

Bruce and Family:

May God wraps his arms around each of you and give you comfort, peach and strength in the coming days, weeks, months and years. Michelle was a wonderful lady with a beautiful voice. I loved listening to her sing at church. She will be missed dearly by all.

I remember seating in her kitchen meeting her for the first time when Martha wanted to spend the night with Tara , she put me at ease by knowing what do for her. Just by telling me she was a nurse. I've seen her over the years always had a sparkle in eye jump in her step.

There are too many memories with this precious lady to put down in one little paragraph. We will never forget our trip to Branson and the Amish Village close by, driving around in the pouring snow, laughing till we were almost crying because you were bound and determined to make it up all the impossible slick hills just to prove you could. If they had to admit it, I think you scared Bruce and Jerry just a little. Had to get that fresh bread, and homemade noodles and lots more before the roads were impassable. We planned so many times going back, but never seemed to work out. We enjoyed all the Christmas's, Birthdays, Thanksgiving we shared through the years. All the countless hours sitting on the back porch just talking about everything. Never will forget the many nights, while you were on Call spending the night at our house. Sure missed it when you got your camper and stayed in Conway instead. There are so many more memories it could take years. You were such an inspiration to our children when they were growing up, you'll always be their Aunt Michelle. Never gonna be another. Love you sweet lady, will see you again one day.

I had the priviledge of working with Michelle in surgery. She was such a caring friend, co-worker and nurse. She was the type of person that would do anything to help others! I remember her telling me that the cancer had made her a better christian. I can only hope to be the christian witness that Michelle was around others! Heaven must be wonderful with angels like Michelle singing. I pray that God comforts you through this season of life.
